ANH Refractories is launching a revamped range of products for the cement manufacturing sector following a period of intensive testing and research.

The American owned company says its subsidiary, ANH Refractories Europe now manufactures and distributes its comprehensive range of refractory products for cement kilns from its Bromborough UK plant to customers worldwide.? 

ANH Europe managing director Peter Rooney said the aim is to simplify customers’ product selection process and drive customer satisfaction. “This move will help to boost exports with the firm targeting cement manufacturers across Europe, India and the Middle East, as well as the US,” he said.

“Our range of products for the cement manufacturing sector, in particular, has been expanded over many years. The new portfolio has been streamlined and refined to offer the best and latest in refractory technology and create a more powerful core offering of monolithic, brick and precast refractories. Products are now categorised for easier selection. Critically however, the portfolio still retains ANH’s signature products. Brands such as Vesta and Versaflow, well known to ANH customers in the US, are now readily available from its new distribution hubs outside America. We hope these improvements will broaden our appeal, improve customer satisfaction and reinforce ANH as a world leader in refractories for cement kilns and further boost our reputation.”

Recent deals have seen ANH supplying a range of these products to the Holcim Ste. Genevieve plant, USA HeidelbergCement, Ketton UK and Lafarge, Retznei Austria.? 

ANH Europe has recently expanded its sales and engineering teams, including the appointment of Stephan Frank, a senior refractory engineer, hired to drive exports in emerging cement markets including Turkey, Ukraine and India.”
